Just a question to anyone out there- I developed an infection at the top of my vertical incision about 2 1/2 weeks PO (TAH/BSO) 8/25. Went through 12 days of antibiotics. Saw my Dr. at 4 weeks everything looked great. Yesterday I noticed a little redness further down from the initial site of infection. Today I have redness and now a bit of fluid leaking in the incision area!! I am going to see my Dr. on Thurs. of this week for 6 week check. I will call today I just wanted to see if anyone out there had had this happen??
Yes I did call my doctor yesterday and he started me on another round of medication. Hopefully this time will take care of it! I will see him on Thursday of this week. He thought it would be very unusual to have infection at this point, but I wonder if maybe it wasn't completely cleared after the first time.. Thanks for your concern and I will post again!
Hi Fire- thanks for checking on me I think the meds are working. Very little redness now and not tender like it was on Sunday. So I see the doctor tomorrow and hopefully will be released to my normal activities! I'll let you know!
I had my 6 week post op check today. Infection appears to be clearing up but will finish out the meds. Doctor has given me the okay to return to normal activities! YEAH!! Thanks again your concern "Fire"
Congratulations on getting the "all clear", and it's great to hear that your infection is under control! That is such great news and I hope YOU have an excellent weekend too! Make sure you do something to celebrate!
